Gus Malzahn ‘very disappointed’ in Nick Marshall’s pot citation

Nick Marshall

Friday evening, it was reported that Auburn starting quarterback Nick Marshall ran into a little bit of a legal issue earlier in the day. ┬áSpecifically, Marshall was cited — not arrested, mind you — for possession of marijuana and tinted windows following a traffic stop.

A couple of hours later, the football program has publicly responded to the incident in a two-sentence statement attributed to head coach Gus Malzahn.

Below is the statement, in its brief entirety:

“I’m aware of the situation that happened earlier today with Nick. I’m very disappointed and I will address it with him accordingly.”

Whether “address it with him accordingly” means “suspension/any loss of playing time” remains to be seen.

The Tigers, incidentally, open the 2014 season Aug. 30 against SEC foe Arkansas. Whether the regular-season opener that also doubles as the conference opener for the defending league champs would be used by Malzahn as a teachable, zero-tolerrance moment is unknown.

    Yeah, at some SEC schools this would be an automatic 1 game suspension. At Auburn it just gives him street cred.

    He is disappointed that Marshall didn’t share with him.

    So, when he’s not playing in the shotgun, he’s giving them to his teammates.

    He should suspend him for the opener, it’s not like Arkansas is a threat….they’re horrible.

    That’s what they call discipline at Auburn….coach says he’s disappointed. He won’t even miss a play because his punishment is saying the coach is disappointed.

    And it’s not like he’s ever been in trouble before…oh that’s right. Can AU win without a QB who has been kicked out from another school?
